By: Dr. Pamela Stephenson-Connolly
Inner front cover: When did your sexual experiences start? Are you having more virtual sex than real sex? Can you have too much or not enough sex? What exactly is 'normal'?
Drawing on hundreds of intimate interviews with ordinary people of all ages, appetites and backgrounds, Pamela Stephenson-Connolly reveals how the ever-present sexual force in each of us evolves throughout our lives - from our first months in the womb to our nineties and beyond. She also shows that there is no such thing as 'normal' and that anything goes when it comes to sex as long as it's safe, sane and consentual. The result is an intimate portrait of our sexual selves that dispels the myths, guilt and mystery surrounding sex and our sexual urges.
Hugely informative, always entertaining and at times shocking, this is arguably one of the most enlightening books on sex ever published.
Very interesting book! I consider myself fairly open-minded, but as I was reading this I felt my mind opening even more. There were so many things in the book that I've never even though about, but that made perfect sense.
It's all about peoples' sex life. How every body is different. How it can be because of upbringing, religion, choice etc. And it was just very interesting and educational. Most people don't think of disabled people and elderly people as being sexual beings, which is a shame and this books writes a lot about it. It also covers the LGBT community, with testimonials, which I though was very interesting as it's strange for me to imagine a sexual relationship with a woman, so it was educational to read what goes through the minds of lesbian, gays, bisexuals and trans-genders and what difficulties they might face.
I would recommend this book to anyone over 13-14, and especially parents as it might help them communicate with their children about sex, a very important topic if you think about it.
